Sake & Miwa - Something for You

Posted by Beau Timken in 2010, Newsletter, Sake & Miwa, September
Miwa During the seven years in business, our customers have been asking these questions regularly: "Do you have a monthly sake club? " "Do I get a discount?" And "Do you keep track of my purchases?" Well, this month I'd like take a moment to answer them.

Purchase Tracking
Currently we have an old-school way of keeping your purchase history in our booklets (if you ask): you are assigned a page number, and we list what you buy on your page. Well, I plan to go electronic by the year-end.

True Sake Club: starting in October
For those who are in California (or shipping to the state) and interested in the program, please email us at following information:
  • Your full name
  • Shipping and billing addresses
  • Shipping to a residential or business address
  • Your phone number
  • Your email
Contact: sakeclub @ In the mid September we will follow up details.

Frequent Buyer Program: starting September 8th
All these year at the store, I've been seeing familiar faces week after week. I truly appreciate your dedicated love and interest in Nihonshu. This program is one way to say thank you for on-going support. Rather than honoring the dollar amount, I'd like to honor the frequent hellos.

How it works:
Upon your request, we will start keeping track your visit at the store. If you are interested, please provide us with following information when you come in.
  • Your full name
  • Your phone number
  • Your email address
  • Every time you purchase sake at normal price, we will count that transaction will be counted as a visit.
  • Shipping order of sake at normal price (excluding True Sake Club shipping) will be counted as a "visit".
  • On your 8th visit, you receive 20% off on your purchase on normally priced item. (This includes book, sake glasses, etc.)
  • Your 9th visit will be the starting of next cycle.
What is NOT counted as a visit:
  • Purchasing only a bottle of the secret word sake
  • Purchasing only sales items
  • Purchasing only a case of same sake, which comes with 10% discount
  • Purchasing only non-sake items such as books, sake socks, glassware.
Thank you always for your business. See you at the store!
